Note: If leading zeros are included in your ID numbers, please make sure that all cells are formatted as TEXT – otherwise the leading zeros will be removed after saving.

As from version 4.7:
In version 4.7 the CSV file import and export has been extended by three supplementary fields *.
If any CSV templates already exist from previous software versions, please make sure to supplement them by the above-mentioned fields.

*The feature „Supplementary fields“ is released as from IZYTRONIQ Premium variant.


Importing the Finished CSV File:

1. Open IZYTRONIQ and click [Portable Objects] -> [Import].

2. Choose[From File] and select the saved CSV file.
